A Poetic Aside

Hello world, I haven’t seen you in a few days.  Family has taken precedence for the last week or so, so the blogging has been pretty minimal.  Today’s post won’t be much different, but consider this the transition back toward normal.  Today’s post is a poem I wrote after completing the devotional for Psalm 90:12 a couple of weeks ago.  It’s been awhile since I’ve shared any of my poetry with the world, so this took some time for me to get the courage up to do.

Check back Friday for a new Top 5, Monday for a new devotional, and next Wednesday for my wife’s monthly hijacking of this blog.

Here’s the poem:

Let’s keep the fear from our faces
and the worry from our minds.
The brevity of life
can’t be ignored.

The numbers on our days
continue to climb upward,
but what will be
our final digits?

We cannot know the end
of our time together,
so let’s live, let’s love,
let’s have life while we’re here.

Days may bring
problems unexpected,
but we can face them
together arm-in-arm.

Remember the past
and hope for the future.
But today is what we have,
so today is when we live.
